Submission + - More Evidence for Water on Titan (space.com)

gpronger writes: Researchers using data from NASA's Cassini continue to build evidence that Titan is composed of a frozen outer "shell", a layer of liquid water, and then a solid core.

"We think that the presence of an internal ocean is likely," said study lead author Rose-Marie Baland of the Royal Observatory of Belgium in Brussels.

This is based upon calculations starting from prior work and reviewing orbital data that the best fit is if Titan has a subsurface ocean.
